where you grew up. >> i grew u 70 miles from here. as a youngster, i came down here. i came down and went to basketball camp here for four years. you are on the campus. you are walking ound. theirst colle football game i saw was just right out there at capital one field at byrd stadium now. it used to be byrd adium, now, capital one field. >> i talked a former teaate ofyours, art monk. he said he were always a student of the game and you took t time you needed to master everything. is that the same kind of approach that you will bri here to maryland? >> there is no question. i was fortunate that i had a chance to play with art at syracuse. he was a great player. i wasn't good enough to get on the field d throw himhe ball. i learned a lot about the game there and was fornate enoug
to be under good coaches. the thing i want to do is to get these young people here at the university ofaryland to reall understa how to maximize their potential everything, not just as a football player but as a person and as a student. >> how do you pla to get but in that stadm? >> one of the things i am going to make sur i do is get out and be visible in the community so people can see what i'mll about and what the program is all about and get our young men out as mh as we can, get them exposure through the media so people can see what te of young men they are. again, i think peopl have to come out and understand here is who were. yeah, u have to win. again,e will be entertaing from the standpoint tt these kids will go out and play hard for 60 minutes. >> when it was goi on, there were a lot of people that voted
